ed demarco who would be out and put someone in who would be more sympathetic to obama's housing policies. with europe, i think the best thing that the president could do is put some pressure on the international monetary fund to write down or write off or suspend interest charges on greek borrowing. if we can help greece solve its problems, we can start a domino effect of positive things in europe. pete: do you agree that there's a lot the president can do to improve the economy? >> i think there are some things and jim knows much better than i do. there's also a feeling in the white house that they have put the building blocks in place and can they get past this fiscal cliff moment? we're on a track to a better four years anyway. when you heard during the campaign mitt romney promise 12 million new jobs, you heard obama say we're going to have 12 million new jobs anyway these next four years, just based on where we are right now. without even additional stimulus or additional x factors that would goose the economy. pete: we always talk about new cabinet secretaries. would it ch

nonsense? >> big brother is watching you, big brother is watching you through the obama white house, through the department of health and human services and transmit that to the job and also to your employer. i don't like it. i don't want big brother watching me and telling me how much to eat or when to walk or whether or not to smoke, i like to live my own life, and i'm a grownup. i had my mother telling me what to to eat when i'm a child, i'm done with that, i don't want mr. obama to be my mother. >> and i listen to my mommy and calls me and tells me to eat more veggies i will, but i draw the line there. julian, i think it's part of that social utopia coming out of washington these days, not only ultimately expensive, but takes away from personal liberties. it's one thing to try to pick winners and losers in the economy, but to decide on personal behavior just seems wrong in america. >> well, we incentivize behavior we think is good and disinvent advise. >> who is we? >> who is we? >> the government, the government constantly. so, the point here is i think price waterhouse cooper
the house. obama's plan to keep the taxes low bush tax cuts and obama tax cuts. to keep it low. i think it should be agreed to right along the wape discuss whether or not the millionaires should pay the clin ribiton tax rates. millionaires themselves n and polls show they need to pay more taxes and percent of the americans believe they need more taxes and lowest tax necessary 80 years and we have a high deficit. they can afford to pay more. >> the fact is, many republicans are saying okay. we want to talk about taxes. let's also take a look at entitlements and speppeding cuts and so far, the white house hasn't put forward anything on paper that they are willing to discuss. >> that is one of the hardcore issues here. there is an idea coming from the democrats we are going to raise taxs and off set it by raising taxings. we have a staggering economy and unemployment and we'll hit 50 million americans on food stamps and no end for that number to constantly grow even as unemployment rates went down. we are adding to people on food stamps which doesn't make sense. how do youriform these thin
might expect in four years of a second term for barack obama. where he reelected, obama in all probability would face the daunting challenge of working with republican majorities in house and possibly in the senate. what lessons might obama learn from history were he reelected? confronted with a congress dominated by republicans, further complicating this challenge is apparent disappearance of the spirit of compromise which has been a mainstay of legislation throughout the nation's history with one very momentous exception. members of congress in the south would not compromise on the subject of the expansion of slavery. 11 states seceded and the civil war ensued. we heard much about the impending battle between the president and congress over the extension of the george bush tax cuts, raging the debt limit and potential of automatic cuts in spending. necessity of resolving these issues is what ben bernanke refers to as a fiscal cliff. it is likely these critical decisions will be given brief extensions so that the next president and congress will be saddled with making the deci
of negotiations between the obama administration and congress, particularly the republican controlled house. as i watched the president during his recent press conference and listened to leaders of the house, i think everybody agrees it would be highly desirable to reach a compromise. they also agree the elections provided a mandate. the president seems to think that he is the one who got the mandate and that republicans are saying, well, yes, mr. president, but me, too. and how do you reconcile two mandates and reach an agreement? what are the consequences of failing to do so? this is one of the most important issues facing the administration, the congress, and the nation. mr. norquist. >> several months ago i said there are two options for after the election. after the election, if romney was elected, he would have republican senate to go along with the house. they would pass the ryan plan, taking corporate and individual taxes to a 25% top rate, and having a territorial tax system rather than a worldwide tax system. on the spending side, do the ryan plan -- have entitlement reform, the means t

scores. >> now, this is all very problematic for the white house. just two days ago, president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton were praising morsi's government for helping broker a cease fire between israel and gaza. today, the u.s. state department expressed concern over the recent developments saying quote, one of the aspirations o f the egyptian revolution was to ensure power would not be overly concentrated in the hands of any one person or institution. he was elected in june with nearly 52% of the vote, but thousands are calling for his removal today as they stormed the headquarters of one of his chief support groups. the crowd then marched on to tahrir square, chanting birth of a new pharaoh. let's get the latest on this situation with ian lee in cairo tonight. what's the situation right now? >> reporter: well, tom, it's 2:00 a.m. now in cairo. and the protests are still going on. we're still seeing clashes in and around tahrir square between the protesters and the police. we're seeing a range of things thrown back and forth. rocks, we've seen molotov cocktails, we
is that the white house under president obama put into place a system whereby if certain number of people have a question for the white house, the white house will answer if it reaches a certain threshold of the members. these are not really petitions that will have the force of carrying forward a secession. and you are quite right that if there were secession in texas, if texas became a separate nation, it would be as though you were going to mexico or canada and they would have the right to set up a border control if they wanted to. and may require a passport. i have a feeling if that happened there would be agreements with texas and the united states where it would be pretty much like the status quo or going into canada, it would be a separate country but there be such cooperation that it probably would be pretty much the same as it is today. there's always the possibility of a constitutional amendment which would then legitimize and provide a procedure for secession. but it takes an awful lot of votes and congressmen and senators to pass a constitutional amendment. as it currently exists,
for three weeks thought obama was going lose, lose the senate and the house was going to be republican and scared the heck out of all of us and that was a period when all of a sudden they said, wait a minute, we could have two more people like alito on the supreme court. >> and i think power is a very important thing and unseating an incumbent is hard, we usually give our presidents a second chance. but his shot or fair shot and fair share was persuasive, but it could have been met with fair shot and fair share, the government the way it's going is holding you back and the reason you consider yourself lower middle class, you can't get ahead because the government is holding you back. >> and that's the rhetoric. >> without a couple of major league flubs over the last two election cycles, the senate very well could be republican and there are a lot of tea party people who did win senate seats. >> absolutely. they've been a commendable force, in terms of motivation, momentum, raising money and get out the vote and they have been very good. and they're doing better in many respects than th
